In April, we reported on the Air Force Logistics Support Command’s procurement directorate tender to conduct aircraft simulator practices. Nine of the twelve lots in which this contract is awarded have now been awarded to the companies Flightsafety International, Airbus Defense and Space and Cinetic Plus SL.
Remember that the contract is formalized by a framework agreement with twelve different lots depending on the type of aircraft on which pilots and crews are being trained. It will be developed between the second half of 2020 and the second half of 2022, although an extension for another year has been set. The value of this contract exceeds 7.5 million euros and, with renewals, reaches an estimated value of 11.2 million euros. The two criteria for evaluating the tenders are the price at 60% and the proximity of the contractor’s facilities to the unit at 40%.
